  3. To spotlight the role of the FRYSC in the educational process.

Stimulus Payments for those facing homelessness

Survey for Families

(May 10, 2021) The YSC is partnering with Dunbar to apply to seek grant funding for grief counseling for the 2021-2022, 2022 – 2023 school years. Please complete this short survey to provide us with data. CLICK HERE (Complete by May 14, 2021)

Summer Meal Distribution

Minority Youth Mental Health Summit

(April 26, 2021) This Summer New Vista is hosting a Minority Youth Mental Health Summit, an online 3-session event that will focus on the mental health of our BIPOC students in our community (for High Schoolers, including 8th graders entering High School in August). This will take place on June 16th, June 30th, and July 14th.
A large part of this Summit is Youth Involvement. Many Youth say that they are missing a “voice” in the mental health space, and we want to give it to them. The summit will have speakers, panelists, and discussion for students to talk about Mental Health at School, at Home, and in the Community.
An important part of this Summit is student creation. Students can help in a variety of ways, from creative outlets to leading a structured part of the summit. If you are interested in helping with this event (through original creation such as writing or art, leading a discussion group, or other ways) please click the link below to submit your name. Many students are passionate about mental health, and being involved in this summit would look great on college applications!
